Marie Länne Persson, Märta Ramsten, Rasmus Joensen – Ballads - a medieval Facebook?

Saturday 9 June 2012 14:00 - 15:00 The Stockholm Cathedral Parish Hall

The Nordic medieval ballad in the spotlight!

The social function of the ballad in medieval Nordic society was significant. Here, the subject is discussed by three scholars and musicians with three of the ballad's essential qualities as a starting point - the epic contents, the wealth of melodic variations, and the rhythmical dance steps.
